Socal Regionals is this weekend, and I’m excited. I was looking at the sponsors page, and I see all these companies, large and small supporting it. Except Capcom. The company that made the 2 biggest fighting games currently. There’s something wrong with this.
There has been a lot of talk recently about the FGC and “pro” leagues. UltraDavid and Tom Cannon have written excellent articles, vVv Gaming had a podcast with Spooky debating the issue. However a major point that is always brought up is the past mistakes that MLG has made with fighting games. They picked DOA, they supported Tekken 6 when it was on it’s way out already. They don’t have Capcom games. But the reason they don’t have Capcom games is because Capcom doesn’t allow them to have a licensing deal. Namco does. I’m sure MLG wanted Street Fighter, but Capcom has to allow them to do that. We as a community should tell Capcom to support with bigger events. UltraDavid did bring it up, Blizzard supports Starcraft, why doesn’t Capcom support it’s own games?
Am I wrong on this? Thoughts?
